Happy to have one of "the cousins" correct me but letting crims out of their well deserved durance vile seems to be a Democrat thing. Wonder who will pardon Shrillary?

AussieD: Wonder who will pardon Shrillary?

In a word...Obama.

If she is elected he can pardon her, yes, even before any charges are filed, until January 20th. The only exception (per the Constitution) a President is not able to give a pardon is Impeachment.

Also, if elected (Hillary) and charged with a felony while in office she can pardon herself.

Tell me you jest Up2L8. If elected she could pardon herself? What long dead [I assume] f--kwit promulgated that piece of crap?

That ability makes Duffers' favourite Cocklecarrots look positively spotless examples of legal rectitude.

Not at all.

The only limits mentioned in the Constitution are that pardons are limited to offenses against the United States (i.e., not civil or state cases), and that they cannot affect an impeachment process.!/articles/2/essays/89/pardon-power


I need to clarify before any charges are filed. If a grand jury is empaneled and return a true bill it would reasonable to assume charges to fallow. Or if a deal is made.

An example: Ex CIA Director John Deutch was storing classified information on his home computer. But before criminal charges could be filed, on last day in office then President Clinton granted Deutch a pardon.

Often times not as explanatory as I should be.


My fingers are as blind as I'm.

Obama has run a gangster government like the punk community agitator he was and is. Freeing these cons is a natural for him. To repay, these cons will return home to neighborhoods that were glad to be rid of them. No one is more cruel to blacks than a black man with a lot of power. Some of his final acts of contempt for his country.

"Obama comes in eighth out of the 12, but still records a positive score, indicating a roughly average performance. That is based on six full years of his record, from 2010 to 2016. (This analysis leaves two years to go, because I allowed one year for the effects from the previous administration to subside -- more on that later.)

That is not a stunning performance, but it is a major improvement over that of his predecessor, George W. Bush, whose economic score was significantly lower than even Jimmy Carter’s. Rest assured, in this analysis a president’s score takes into account what he inherited and what he left behind. That’s one reality that both benefited and hampered Ronald Reagan’s and Obama’s scores."

As for releasing low-level drug offenders, it's about time. In some places in the US a person caught with a joint can get locked up for 20 years while a murderer can be released in 8. Americans both love drugs and have a history of politically linking them to violent crime; a link that's a cover for racism and political convenience. Drugs begin with "D" and that rhymes with "P" and that stands for Pool!

Clinton will not have to pardon herself. As soon as she is installed president Comey is toast. The FBI will become another corrupt arm of the Democratic party like the IRS, the attorney general and quite a few more that they have subverted to their cause. Obama brought in Mafia style government. Well you aint seen nothing yet. The Clinton foundation has honed Clinton's gangster skills way beyond Obama's and his were impressive.

Still defending the indefensible, Bob?

Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?


It depends on who's defining what's defensible and decent.

Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?

Joseph N. Welch vs. Senator Joseph McCarthy June 9, 1954

It's ironic that a phrase originally used against a populist scaremonger is now being used by someone who supports one.

Oh Goody Bob!

"Americans both love drugs and have a history of politically linking them to violent crime; a link that's a cover for racism and political convenience."

Thanks Bob, I almost deleted that bookmark during last month's cleaning!

Thank you very sincerely, Bob

I am an equal-opportunity adaptor, Bob, when choosing a bon mot that fits the conversation. To paraphrase another one of your indefensible idols [I refer, of course, to the Clintons, not to the defense attorney Welch], "It also depends on what the meaning of is is".

I like to strike while the irony's hot, though it's usually wasted on people who spout boilerplate Leftist propaganda. Is it really your ambition to drive us toward your mission of forcing our submission, by monotonous repetition, of Leftist ammunition fused from fecal horse emission?

TBH, apparently we will not walk off into the fog like Humphrey Bogart and Claude Rains at the end of 'Casablanca' as you had imagined. I'm very disappointed.


Tell it to the editorial writers at TheRoot Bob.

Good heavens, Bob, was it something I said? Perhaps I was a bit harsh in responding to your insinuation that Mr. Trump is an ogre just like the vile Joe McCarthy was. My apologies.

I'm originally from New York, and New Yorkers are well known for their abrasive sense of humor. Got a peace pipe handy?

JK, there is a difference between opinion and fact, which is a thing too often overlooked in politics.

TBH, not to worry. Chicagoans aren't famous for being overly-sensitive.

Simply responding to your observation Bob:

"Americans both love drugs and have a history of politically linking them to violent crime; a link that's a cover for racism and political convenience" @ November 5, 1429;

In a nutshell, the recognition that when it comes finally down to the dominating tools of political expediency, racism & convenience, the Clinton's have no equals.


Apropos, "Chicagoans aren't famous for being overly-sensitive", I can live with that. In fact, I actually do live with that -- my wife, the lovely Trish, is a former Chicagoan. And yes, she is very happy about the Cubs winning the World Series.

Henry, I picked up your message - sorted!


Oh, please. Can you type the Clintons are worse than Trump and keep a straight face?

Free advice: Quit reading forwarded emails about politics.

As for drugs, here's an example:

"According to U.S. Sentencing Commission figures, no class of drug is as racially skewed as crack in terms of numbers of offenses. According to the commission, 79 percent of 5,669 sentenced crack offenders in 2009 were black, versus 10 percent who were white and 10 percent who were Hispanic. The figures for the 6,020 powder cocaine cases are far less skewed: 17 percent of these offenders were white, 28 percent were black, and 53 percent were Hispanic. Combined with a 115-month average imprisonment for crack offenses versus an average of 87 months for cocaine offenses, this makes for more African-Americans spending more time in the prison system."

This is not new: "The first American anti-drug law was an 1875 San Francisco ordinance which outlawed the smoking of opium in opium dens. It was passed because of the fears that Chinese men were luring white women to their "ruin" in opium dens. Cultural studies of the time showed that opium dens occupied a place in Chinese culture roughly comparable to the position that saloons occupied in white culture."

Oh yeah, and as far as Americans loving drugs:

Also TBH, congrats to you for Trish and to Trish for our victory. Finally.

May surprise you Bob but, I haven't read a single solitary email-forward since about oh, maybe about June 2015. I don't click links either unless, I've specifically and personally requested such from people I have a personal, usually professional (though sometimes I have requested "third party product information" - generally electronics/automotive sorts of stuff - from parties I've had a business project experience) ... I do get jokes but even there I generally count on Duff to pick out and post the best on Monday Funnies. The exception on the latter being from my Australian e-pals which number of regulars = eight. Two of them American ex-pats.

As for "Can you type the Clintons are worse than Trump and keep a straight face?" ... well as a matter of fact, yes. Yes I can. Bear in mind Bob, we Arkianese *enjoy* a relationship with that criminal enterprise going back to 1976.


Jeez Wayne, release the caps lock, makes my ears hurt.

And really Wayne, review mine and Bob's comments over the interim October 28 to yesterday, you'll note neither of us bothered to express confidence (either way, either of us) the letter would have much if any, effect.

I, as a "deplorable in good standing" and Bob of the upper rank of "the deluded" can assure you, had either of us seen advantage we'd used it to (figuratively) coldcock the other over internet noggin.
